Amazing Futures is for young people with additional needs aged 14-25 in Brighton & Hove and East Sussex

It’s a youth-led project, connecting young people and empowering them to have a place where their voices are heard and valued, where they can be unapologetically themselves.

Groups and activities

We run regular social groups where young people can meet and take part in activities like games, cooking and art, plus sessions with specific themes like boardgames or wellbeing workshops 

One to one support

Amaze can give young people one-to-one information, advice and guidance on things like education, employment and training, benefits, health and social care and wellbeing. We do this through our SENDIASS advice service, our benefits advice service and Amazing Futures Careers. Young people can also get one-to-one peer support from other young people via our Amazing Futures groups.

Volunteering opportunities and paid internships

These roles provide invaluable learning and development opportunities and pathways into the community. They’re also a lot of fun! 

Youth Voice

Our groups provide opportunities for young people to share their views and experiences on things that affect them. This might mean helping to shape the development of our website, feeding back on health services or how safe they feel in their communities.  Amazing Futures is co-delivered by young people, and Amaze has young people on its trustee board.  

Wellbeing support

We offer wellbeing walks, workshops and resources to all our young people, as well as targeted one-to-one support from our mental health worker in some cases.
